TagMyDoc: Share Your Documents with QR Codes

One of the best things about QR codes is that they allow you to place information on your phone or tablet without having to type in a long url which takes time and isn't always the easiest thing to do on a portable device. In other words, a QR code makes sharing quick and easy.

One of the bad things about portable devices is that, all too often, the only way to share handouts (from PDF's, Microsoft Word documents, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, Microsoft PowerPoint slides, OpenDocuments and images) from a meeting or a conference is still by email, but a free online service called TagMyDoc changes those parameters.

Tag My Doc allows you to assign and print a QR code on a document and the process is really simple. Just upload your document or image (see above options) and let TagMyDoc generate a QR code for it and then place it on your document. Print it out and then share it with others during your meeting, presentation, or conference.

The free version of the service allows you to store up to 1GB of documents on your TagMyDoc account, password protect your documents, and choose the placement of the QR code on your document.

Try TagMyDoc and see how simple it is and think of the ecological benefits of the service, i.e. not having to print or carry so many paper documents.
